OOC: Next Story

For my next trick, I'm going to serialize Mating Flight, a novel I wrote a couple years ago which I had vaguely intended to try to sell but evidently I hate marketing a lot.

How do you feel about paying for a serialized novel?

It is a wonderful blessing to get decent writing for free
